Designer Lucie Koldova has been invited by the IMM Cologne organisation to create Das Haus, a special exhibition with her view on the future of furniture.
She has collaborated with TON CZ, as a successor of one of the original Thonet factories well versed to create new forms of bentwood furniture. From this collaboration originated the Chip chair. The back clearly alike a potato chip rather than a chair made from wood chips as other chip chairs on this blog show.
At first I’ll share my own photos with my dear readers. Later I’ll share TON CZ photo’s.
I’m planning to visit IMM Cologne again after two years of absence, while last year I visited Maison et Object in Paris instead of IMM. And nice to find out that the designer who will decorate The House (Das Haus) on invitation of the organizing trade show, did indeed design a sofa and a chair for the Belgian manufacturer Per/Use:
A large-scale object to serve as the centrepiece of the interior. It was a fascinating experience to sculpt an object out of a soft textured material. The subtle yet robust form and the combination of natural Portuguese cork and strawberry-red cushions is my personal visual statement.
Prague designer Lucie Koldova recently launched ‘x-stools’, a collection of minimal tabourets which complement her previous chair design miss extreme. The x-stools are made from fibreglass and come in 5 different colours. they will be produced in a limited-signed-edition and made available exclusively through 66 degrees. http://www.luciekoldova.com
